Care to join us?

We pride ourselves on choosing kind and compassionate people who will care for our residents as though they were members of their own family. Then, when we find people who share our ethos, we nurture and invest in them, making sure they feel appreciated and supporting them to be the very best that they can be.

Don’t just take our word for it. Our Investors in People accreditation shows our commitment to being the best employer we can and what our teams think of us speaks volumes.

Louie Tayag, Staff Nurse at Watlington & District Nursing Home: “I wanted to be a nurse because I wanted to care and I believe Sanctuary Care has given me the opportunity to care. They treat you as an asset which motivates staff.”

“To be able to go home smiling and wanting to go back to work again smiling is something I have to be proud of.”

We are a leading care provider with more than 100 care homes across England and Scotland. As part of a not-for-profit group, surplus we make gets reinvested directly back into care and the wider group.
